Me and my friends are getting this error

www.furnation.com/axlegear/ohcrap.JPG

Is the site temporarily overloaded, or is there an actual problem?

Nope, still rejecting me, Mac, and Man

Beautiful touche, Uncia. XD

Sadly, for this situation, 'tis not working.

Also confirmed non-working for Wry, and Gig.

So that's 6 out of 6 of us so far. I'mma goin' down my IM list. =3

Well, that's back again - for the third time - for me, so at a /guess/ it's self-recovering to an extent.
I've flagged that up to Damaratus, but at a guess no-one's available tech-side just now to check beyond the queues & monitors (and I don't "officially" have access to browse even those anymore, so I'm not prodding the relevant URLs).

We shouldn't be that far off peak just now, but would certainly be worth checking up on if that's not been deliberately throttled for testing. No indication of that that I can see, anyhow.

Hopefully an update to follow...

Well at least the coders gave error messages that made better sense, instead of "FA is experiencing a large load" (which has all kinds of other connotations on what's known as a "porn dump")

Edit: Restarted Apache a few minutes ago. You may have received a 502. If you still see the 502 page, hit control-f5 to refresh your browser.

thx.

aside: Unlike the other outage page, the 502 page doesn't have a link to drop people back to the Site Status forum, so there's a good chance some/many people won't spot your message, Blue.

Good point.
*edits*

[edit]
Is this good enough?

Helpful. :)
(Might even be worth adding the "... if CTRL + <F5> to refresh does not work" hint, or words to that effect, to those screens to minimise potential for people being "left behind"? System availability is a darned sight better these days, thankfully... ^^)

Cheers,
David.

I would advise saying Please Refresh or "Hard refresh" your browser as Mac users are not CTRL F5 XD

(Heck, they could try it anyhow. :))

*nods*. Good point, Arshes...

aside: Spotted that other 502 thread from earlier today: any news on the backstory to that? From experience those do tend to snowball...

Different issue, coders are currently working on the problem. Hold tight again folks.

2:26a eastern; dead here. Encountered this 502 occasionally over the past couple days.. now I know what people were talking about like a year ago when I guess the site was really plagued wit hthem. Bit of a nuisance :/ hope the mystical code ninjas can get things smoothed out :)

Oh and of course now I do get a shiny blue link to the site status page, which has no information about 502's
 
Redundancy here, but who knows, it may help to track site status.

3:00 am, EST, system MacOSX, receiving Error 502 page. It's been this way since around 2:00 am EST. (yes, I've hard refreshed).

So I assume the site's down and admins will be on it as soon as they humanly can.

There's a problem with Apache crashing and not recovering. Every time it has to be restarted by hand.

We're looking into what's causing it, and why is it happening now and hasn't been happening say, a month ago.
